Mr. Wright
The Mitchell Library

Dear Sir,

I am in receipt of your letter of the 23rd Sept. & I will gladly give you the particulars you ask for:
No. 6119 Pvte. Warren Hutchings
1st Field Ambulance
1st Aust. Division
A.A.M.C. A.I.E.F.

I have other splendid letters written by the same person but they contain "personal touches". So I wrote & asked him to write me a letter minus any "personal touches" & I would give it to The Mitchell Library. This he did & sent the letter to England to be posted, & now you have it.

I am
Yours Truly
Dorothy Sawell.
